Trout Tails - June 5, 2016

It has been a busy two months.  Water levels have been lower than normal, but the hatches have been incredible.  Spent a few days on the Elk in West Virginia, but ended up being about a week too early for the sulphurs there, and hit an odd weather pattern for May (rain, snow, and sleet) at the end of the trip.  Still managed some good fishing though.

The last couple weeks have been spent chasing wild fish in the mountains of Northcentral PA.  Green drakes on a 0 and 3 weight are a lot of fun!  There is still a lot of hatches to chase and fish to be had, so get out there!

Trout Tails - April 26, 2016

Just a few shots from last night's Wine, Women, and Waders put on by PA Council of TU at Pier 87 on the Loyalsock.  Thanks to Kandy for organizing it and all the volunteers and women that attended, it was a blast!

Trout Tails - April 19, 2016

After what seemed like a never ending winter, Spring definitely sprung this weekend in Central Pennsylvania.  The Grannoms where out, although it wasn't the epic hatch that can occur, there were enough bugs to get the fish moving.  We had some pretty good fishing this past weekend, and Saturday morning was on fire!  While we did catch fish on top, we had to nymph the majority of them.  Lets hope we get some rain soon though, creeks are pretty low for this time of year.

Chile 2016 Photos

It's been a while since I've posted.  Been fishing Penn's a lot this winter, but I doubt anyone is looking for those photos after the Chile trip, so I'll just skip that.  Herb and I headed back down to Tierra Del Fuego and also to Navarino Island in Cape Horn (more on that later).  After the mandatory 24 airport adventure, 8 hour car ride, and 20 minute ferry trip across the Straights of Magellan, we were back at Cameron Lodge on the Rio Grande!  While it is always fun to catch some sea run browns, my real love is the spring creeks in the area.  Small, crystal clear, meandering meadow streams, with deep holes and undercuts, that hold enormous browns (and a few rainbows) willing to eat anything you throw at them....assuming you can make the cast in the wind or don't spook them. 


We spent about a week in Tierra Del Fuego before heading back to Punta Arenas to catch a plane to Lakutaia Lodge (Navarino Island) for some fishing via helicopter.  I will post more details on this when I put the video up, but it is a very special place that seems to have trout in every creek, lake, pond, and mud puddle.  Research recently conducted has shown that Navarino has some of the most pristine water in the world.  Quite possibly THE cleanest water on the planet. The place is essentially untouched and really the only way in and out is by helicopter....but again, more on that later.  For now, I hope you enjoy the photos!
